"Sign of the times: A new beauty subscription service is sending subscribers self-defense tools. ... In the days following the stunning election of Donald Trump, some Americans are celebrating, some are mourning—and some are fearing for their safety. Over the past two weeks, attacks on minorities and immigrants have spiked. Among the targeted groups: Muslim women, some of whom now say they are afraid to wear their hijabs in public."
"There are lots of subscription boxes out there, but this has to be one of the best ones we've seen yet: Muslim Girl — the leading online magazine for Muslim women created by the inimitable Amani al-Khatahtbeh — is launching its first official subscription box this week, the #MuslimGirlArmy Care Package."
"The service also aims to truly address the needs and interests of the modern Muslim woman. "We've seen brands attempt to access the buying power of our unique demographic while doing nothing to empower or engage us, especially in today's sociopolitical climate. We want to cater to Muslim women's diverse lifestyle without stripping away our identity," she explained. "We also want to use products to answer to those issues and equip Muslim women with what they need to replenish and rise up."
"Following Donald Trump’s victory as President-Elect of the USA, racially and religiously-motivated attacks have increased across the country, with many women saying they’re now too afraid to don their hijab. Muslim Girl hope to change that with the self-defence care package, which also includes a copy of their Crisis Safety Manual for women, along with special safety tips and resources."
"Influenced by her experiences growing up Muslim in a post-9/11 world, and by a desire to see her narrative represented in mainstream feminist conversations, Amani Al-Khatahtbeh started MuslimGirl, a website where 'Muslim Women Talk Back.' ... Most recently, MuslimGirl launched the first subscription box service catering to Muslim women's lifestyle."
